Thank you so much for sharing... we struggle with my daughters diet but it has only been 10 months so we are still learning the ropes.

These are all low in fermentable carbs, but limit amounts to see what is tolerated (for us, 2 tortillas, two biscuits, one sandwich round) and don't load up on lots of baked goods in a day  I try to limit it to one baked good per day  

Tortilla/ flat bread:  http://comfybelly.com/2013/04/tortillas-and-a-book-giveaway/#.WScABoFOmEc

Sandwich Rounds (good with peanut butter): http://comfybelly.com/2013/08/sandwich-rounds-using-almond-flour/#.WScAm4FOmEc

Biscuit (these are amazing. Make them sweet and serve with strawberries and coconut cream, savory and make sausage sandwiches, etc):

Oh wow!  I haven't been here in days because I have been POURING over the most recent SIBO literature! 

Have you heard of Dr Nemechek?  https://www.nemechekconsultativemedicine.com/

His approach is very simple and essentially you STOP using probiotics and start taking Inulin.  It is all very fascinating and falling in with what we are seeing with our daughter.

In a nutshell he says that the bacteria that has overpopulated is "damaging" the system (second brain).  That they are meant to stay in the colon but start to grow out (for multiple reasons) and expand into areas of the intestines that should be populated by other area specific bacteria.  They slowly take over and expand out further. 

Probiotics feed EVERYTHING and make the SIBO worse and Antibiotics kills EVERYTHING and does nothing to solve the problem either.  There is one antibiotic - Rifaximin that stays in the colon and does not permeate its walls.  Other than that he suggests that you FEED the good bacteria and allow them to thrive and naturally win back the territory.  Inulin is the food that they eat and taking Inulin (Chickory root fibre) will nourish the healthy bacteria. 

3 months ago we stripped away Gluten and dairy and saw HUGE results and then lost them.  We also introduced a very high quality multi-strain probiotic.  Dr Nemechek says that the fact that some people see gains when they go gluten-free/DF because they essentially "starve" the bad bacteria and there is a bit of a dying off.  But it is not fixing the core issue and often you can see food intolerances and symtoms worsen even though you are still gluten-free/DF.  This is EXACTLY the dynamic we are seeing with our daughter.  She is eating AIR but is still in pain and now her Sensory issues seem worse than ever (thanks to the probiotic maybe)?

He also says that the healthy bacteria secrete an acidic compound that kills off the bad bacteria which also explains why some people feel better when they consume ACV.

I find the entire thing fascinating!

    • How long have you been gluten-free? Took my dh many months to go away after I mastered the diet.
    • What a great post! I will reply, I'm very interested in this topic too, but I'll do it when I have enough time to do your questions justice.  
    • Hello I also tested negative after being convinced it would be positive. If you're interested in learning more about NCGS I collected a few links here. One thing I wanted to comment on is the idea that NCGS means you don't have to be as careful about slipping from the diet. My own experience is that very small amounts of cross contamination can cause symptoms to return. Mostly neuro rather than GI. Of course others may have different experiences, this condition is not yet fully understood. However this is what one of the leading researchers Umberto Volta says: The good news is all my symptoms resolve on the diet. Hopefully that will also be the case for your daughter too. You will both find things get easier as you get more used to the diet, better at reading labels and more comfortable with the 'safe' brands you get to know and trust. It will get easier for you both, just may be rough at the outset.  Best of luck!
    • Kareng, you bring up an interesting question.  She sees a pediatric GI who diagnosed her with NCGI.  She tested negative on blood work and biopsy was negative 3 years ago.  She continued struggling with stomaches, vomiting, headaches, emotional behavior, fatigue or hyperactivity, constipation, etc.  he thought for sure she was celiac 3 years ago but tested negative.  When we returned for a follow up as the symptoms were increasing, he diagnosed the NCGI.  I do have to say besides the snow cone incident, she has felt better the last 3 weeks than in a long time.  Should I be looking for a second opinion?  I just want her to feel better.
    • King Arthur makes my favorite gluten-free chocolate cake do not try the store brand Walmart version of gluten-free Oreo style cookies... they are awful. Have you read the noob section yet? Has some great info on how to buy things and organizing the kitchen, and what to get rid of.  Welcome!
